About the Show
Host Tommy Twilite searches near and far for interesting poetry and music. The “Pub” also features news and announcements of local poetry readings and events, as well as special guest poets and interviews. Tommy lends his voice to in-studio readings of poems both famous and obscure, as he strives to bring forth poetry that expresses the human condition in all it’s diversity. Pretty much anything is fair game, from serious poems by political prisoners in Guantanamo Bay to silly poems about pumpkins for Halloween to academic work to street and performance pieces. The “Pub” tries in a special way to give voice to those underrepresented by the poetic mainstream, such as teen mom poets from the Care Center in Holyoke, or local authors, who may be elderly, or disabled, or just regular everyday folks who happen to write poetry. So join us on our journey, as we continue to explore the wonder of the spoken word.
